The promising lightweight, who fights out of Lubbock and is part of Greg Jackson's stable of fighters, was arrested late last month in connection with a drug trafficking case in west Texas. Garcia (11-3) was one of 13 people busted and accused of running cocaine, drug paraphernalia and firearms. He proclaimed his innocence to MMAjunkie.
WEC will not confirm whether the fighter is still under contract.
I checked the WEC website and Garcia is no longer listed on the fight roster. That's obviously not definitive proof of anything, but it's certainly eye raising. Even more intriguing is Garcia's situation, which is either the worst case of bad luck or the most normal case of drug trafficking exacted incompetently. Stay tuned.
